"Next week thousands of people will gather in Mumbai to watch the first-ever NBA basketball game in India," he said at the NRG Stadium during the Howdy Modi event before a 50,000 strong Indian American crowd.

He then smilingly asked, "Am I invited Mr. PM. Haha. I may come, be careful, I may come," he said, in a jovial manner.
